PC Magazine is probably the most influential magazine of its type in the world. A favorable review in that magazine can result in millions of dollars of sales for a software producer. Likewise, a bad review in PC Magazine can be the kiss of death.
Jan Ozer has written an article in February 8, 2005, edition of PC Magazine, entitled Branching Out: Your Family Tree. In the article, Ozer claims, "Here we look at the latest editions of three of the top genealogy programs, along with two interesting newcomers that produce multimedia-based living histories."
Sadly, the author's list of the "top genealogy programs" leaves out three of the most popular genealogy programs of today. Ozer selected a relatively unknown program as "the best" but neglected to review several even more popular programs with much more capability, including Roots Magic, The Master Genealogist, and Family Tree Legends.
I felt so strongly about this poor piece of journalism that I left a comment on the magazine's message board and signed my name to it.
